and joys give rise to moons.

We grow forests in our bones
so our memories can’t find us.

I believe we hide and haunt ourselves."

My mom said, you put so much of yourself online. These strangers know too much about you. Stop giving to these people. Keep your secrets to yourself. Then they’ll mean more when you tell them.

My aunt said, girls, you want to keep some parts of yourself hidden. Don’t go out showing too much skin. Boys don’t want to marry girls who they’ve already seen. I was thirteen, sitting quietly in a knee length dress that had been picked out for me, as I listened to women around me chat about modesty. My cousin touched my covered shoulder and laughed, Why would someone buy the cake if they could get it for free?

Three years later, I sat in the back of his parent’s car, topless and covered in his sweat. I was steaming up the windows by spilling my guts. I told him stories about sucking in the scenery from an airplane window before I moved. I told him about running out the back door at a party and shakily skate boarding to a golf course to breathe. I told him about spending an afternoon rolling down a grass hill, looking for a way to waste time. I was trying to tell him I loved him without saying it outright. He looked out the window, nodded at me, and said, “How many others know these things about you? I mean, you’re sweet, but are these things you’re just telling me?”

I have been taught to save parts of myself for others. My thoughts, they say, mean more when they are unvocalized. My body, I’ve been taught, is a greater gift when I keep it hidden away. I am better swallowed, kept apart, not listened to, not shared, not publicized, stuck in the shadows, invisible, forgotten. I have learned to sit down, stay quiet, and always cross my legs. I have learned how to speak only when spoken to. I know how to be silent. I know how to be sweet. I have had extensive lessons in both. But I do not know how to be me.

How many of you have heard Latasha Harlins?
*everyone is silent*

She was killed by Korean store owner Soon Ja Du, which set off the LA Riots. Ice Cube did a song about her called Black Korea, predicting that riot in fact. Some of us know. And no, I didn’t have to look her up. I remember. I read the Final Call.

She was murdered over a damn bottle of orange juice that store owner thought she was going to steal. There were eye witnesses and security camera footage.
The store owner still got no jail time! 
It’s not just an inconvenience to be followed around the store. You can be murdered if the store clerk decides to stand their ground.  If you’ve been followed around a store before, let Harlins tragedy serve as a reminder of why you shouldn’t go back.
Don’t spend money where you are not welcomed!

reblogging with my commentary:
1) Latasha Harlins was going to pay for the bottle of orange juice, it was Soon Ja Du who physically accosted her. After a physical altercation, Latasha put the bottle of orange juice down and turned to leave the store, at which point Soon shot Latasha with her back turned
2) Soon was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter by the jury, but was given probation, community service, and a $500 fine by the judge. At her court hearing, the white woman judge deployed the model minority ideology in her leniency on Soon, using the narrative that her actions were justified. 
"Judge Karlin characterizes Du Soon Ja as a successful shopkeeper and by implication Karlin presents the Korean community as a successful "model-minority." This presentation thus provides Judge Karlin with an ideological framework to both distance herself from Latasha Harlins individually, and also more generally to absolve non-Blacks .. of any social responsibility for the effects of racial subordination upon African Americans."[x]
3) What happened to Latasha is a crime that everyone should know about, but Asian Americans interested in racial justice must especially know if we are to confront the true evils of having the model minority labeled onto us and of buying into the model minority logic ourselves.
